A custom service of Karrie Porter Photography.

original, want a style of wedding imagery that
no one else has, or are seeking a way to
display your favorite bridal portrait that will
serve as a conversation piece in your home,
request a hand-painted piece of wedding artwork.

HOW IT WORKS

  • we start with a digital photograph
  • if it's one we've captured, work can begin right away
  • if you are providing a professional image captured by another photographer, we'll help you procure the permissions necessary to use the image in the artwork
  • you can also provide images you have captured yourself
  • using a combination of tools and creative medium, we transform the photo into a real painting
  • style can be photorealism to completely abstract; your choice!
     

YOUR BEAUTY, OUR EXPERTISE

  • photographers who hand-paint their images are a rare breed
  • we are the only studio in the Florida Keys that offers this service
  • we have been perfecting our technique since 2003
     

BRUSHED TO PERFECTION

  • this is not a simple "set it and forget it" computer filter
  • combines traditional artist techniques with some modern digital tools
  • approximately 8 to 16 hours of work goes into each piece

  • to give you a rough estimate, rates range from $300 to $800, with most clients averaging about $500 for a moderately-complex image on a 20x24 to 24x36" canvas
